Session 4: Are We Helping or Hurting?

Critical Factors in Motivating Students to Succeed


Have you ever said: “If only my students were more motivated, they would be better students”?  Did you then attribute their lack of engagement as being lazy or apathetic? 

Or perhaps…You should ask “Am I helping or hurting their access to success?” What is at stake here is not about the quantity of student motivation, but rather the quality. The type of motivation can affect the direction, persistence, and behaviors of our students. Join this session to learn what aspects of the class and your teaching, in addition to helpful strategies, influence the resultant type of student motivational goals and expectations.

Note: If you are a faculty member and would like to learn more, register for this year’s Faculty Retreat “Breaking Down the Garden Walls: A Promise of Access to Success” on March 4, 2022.


*This workshop counts towards completion of any of CITL's Teaching Certificates. To learn more about our Teaching Certificate program please visit
